The common name refers to the yellow coloration of the heartwood, which later becomes light brown after it has been cut and dried. It was used to make gunstocks, small decorative furniture, and other specialty items. Yellow-Wood is an unusual tree with smooth bark, showy flowers, and attractive fall coloration. Therefore, it should be cultivated more often.
